The New York Times with the help of Barney's creative ambassador Simon Doonan has decided this week that your food can be gay or straight.
Apparently, a "gay" food isn't just a potato that seeks marriage equality, reminds you it was born this way, or owns a summer share on Fire Island.
According to Doonan, his new (satirical) book Gay Men Don't Get Fat and his interview with The Times today, gay food is lighter, brighter, more artistic, art-directed--food that you'd find where health and aesthetics intersect (and that's very different than what Doonan labels "lesbian food"--"Organic olive oil, thick porridge, heaping helpings of wheat germ," and its ilk). "I love sweeping generalizations,” Doonan told The Times.
"Sweeping generalizations are the key to everything, and they invariably contain nuggets of truth. Sometimes infinitesimally small nuggets." We enjoyed Doonan's sweeping gay food generalizations so we put them to the unscientific, anecdotal test, assigned them a respective Kinsey rating and came up with your (completely unscientific) guide to the sexuality of food, from gayest to straightest:
